Feeds 6 hungry mouths
You will need:
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 small red capsicum, deseeded and diced
  • 1 small green capsicum, deseeded and diced
  • 450g lean beef mince
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes in juice
  • ½ x 250ml bottle F. Whitlock & Sons Chipotle BBQ Sauce
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 brioche buns
Get down to business:
  1. Heat a dash of oil in a lidded frying pan. Add onion, garlic and capsicums and stir-fry over a medium heat until onion softens. Increase heat and add the mince and brown, breaking up the mince with a fork if necessary.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes and F. Whitlock & Sons Chipotle BBQ Sauce. Stir. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce is thick.* Scatter over grated cheese. Place the lid on the pan and allow to stand for 3-5 minutes, to allow the cheese to melt.
  3. Cut burger buns in half. Brush with a little oil and place under the grill to toast.
  4. Spoon over the sloppy Jo sauce and top with bun top.


  1. The sauce should be nice and thick but not dry – as the name suggests ‘sloppy’ consistency.
  2. Replace beef mince with pork mince.
  3. Add some sliced Jalapenos for a real spicy kick.
  4. Serve over baked potatoes.
  5. Reduce mince to 300g. Add a 400g can Red kidney beans. Serve over nacho chips.
